    This cracks me up….Erin is right.  You look “somewhat” like your mom (especially when cropped into that HOT 70s look!), but you aren’t like your mom.  There is a big difference.  You are definitely your own individual, just as she is herself. 

    I look forward to that little icon…hopefully I will find a swift kick in the ass after reading such posts.  Lord knows I need one!

    Who doesn’t want to read a long post about a falling uterus?

    I’m diggin’ that portrait background. Suddenly I have visions of 5th grade school photo hell! wink

    I told my husband yesterday that I want to buy a bikini and actually look good in it before I turn 40. This was said as I sucked in the baby belly while frolicking in my very momesque solid blue tankini. Woo hoo!

    I’m cracking up…totally cracking up…about the photoshop thingy. Ha!

    Oh, and I’m interested in reading about your quest to “get my body back” but I’ll warn ya, I’ve pretty much ditched my bad body image attitude and I’ve COMPLETELY abandoned the whole dieting thing. It all triggers too many bad memories of a past life I lived tied to anorexia.

    I AM back to my pre-preg size and wearing my pre-preg clothes, btw. But not with any dieting or food restriction. I’ve lost 25 pounds in the last year without trying, and I am happy. My body is simply doing what it is supposed to do…and I got my hypothyroid condition treated, which was a gift from my son, my dear second-born.

    I will offer you lots of encouragement and emotional support because I can relate…but not because I will be running my ass off and eating nothing but raw carrot sticks *shudder*

    I want to read about your adventure into getting into shape- mostly bc I am on the same quest and Im not great about blogging as much as I used to.

    When I got my ID in Texas when I had the crazy short hair I looked at it and thought, Holy Hell I am turning into my mother!  It was especially weird for me bc I grew up thinking I didnt look like either of my parents really ( I was blonde and blue eyed with brunette brown/hazel eyed parents.

    I’m also seeing some resemblance between myself and my mother 20 years ago.

    It’s spooky.

    I’ve recently started acquiring the pounds I had lost after my last baby.  She’s 19 months old now and I also had a c-section.  Even when I lost quite a bit of weight, I never lost the muffin top.  I now belong to a gym and am hoping I can sculpt as well as shrink this time around. 

    I would love to join you on your quest.  I am on one as well!

    cannot stop laughing at your photoshopping. you RULE man!!  Yeah. I know. It has been almost 6 months for me and I still have 8 pounds to go. I imagine if I gave up that wine at night I might just get there. Instead, I’ve started doing two aerobics classes when i go. ouchie.

    I registered.  Since we both had our wee-ones around the same time.  I strongly doubt that you can top my deflated uterus.  And like you I tried to put on a pair twelve jeans the other day and mine wouldn’t zip up either….they are still laying on the floor in my closet from when I threw them down in anger over my flabbiness.  You just might inspire me to take a photo of my own tummy but we’ll just see if I have the balls or not.
